Almost looks like it's coming from higher up.

Time to drop some fluorescent dye in.

The oil pan uses a sealant. There is no gasket.

I would probably clean everything really well and then watch for a leak. It's almost impossible to tell where a leak is coming from by looking at the bottom of the car.

literally 2 inches up from the pic is where the pan meets the block, no leak above the seam

had the car raised as i was putting winter tires on, i was completely under doing a look see.

I wonder if that's covered under powertrain warranty. By the way, that't an impressive amount of rust for a 3 year old car.

IIRC an oil leak like this is covered by the powertrain warranty.

When removing the oil pan, the diesel also requires a new suction pipe gasket and seal ring inside the oil pan. A special tool is needed to press it in place.

Would be a good idea to use the warranty if it applies.
